Voices of Diversity – Wisdom Worth Sharing!

When voices of diversity share their wisdom, those speaking and those listening are both empowered.

All of us have a story about our lives, who we are, our resilience, our joys, our families….the stories that brought us to this point in our lives. This wisdom that we all hold is worth capturing and sharing as it tells the story of who we are as a community as well. So much diversity…so much wisdom!

The “Voices of Diversity” Project will offer the opportunity for 10-12 seniors to have their stories filmed, offering their unique and encouraging voices to the community.

This initiative will provide seniors with skill building experiences aimed at re-discovering your voice, your story, the wisdom you have to share!

We will be holding an information session on Monday, June 6th 12:15pm – 1:15 pm on Zoom to further discuss the project and provide more detail on the process and time commitment required.

We are limited in the number of stories that we will be able to film however all your stories are important.

The final completed films will provide an opportunity to begin a discussion together on the wisdom within our community and provide an opportunity to share together in this discussion at the film launch in March 2023.

We will all be inspired regardless of whether we are the ones telling our story or the ones listening.
